Re: Parallel port MIDI interface

Mmmmh I don't think that's it.
I think it was demoed during a CEO meeting, but it was a full-day one and I missed the morning demos, thinking it was only the afternoon!

Never noticed the lyrics before :)
Neither did I!
We heared soooo many great songs in English when we were kids, not understanding the lyrics... Sometimes strange to discover the gap between imagination and actual words :D

BTW, nice ZAP spotting lol

Re: Parallel port MIDI interface

I think Fabrice already made a midi interface for Atmos around 2005?
Not sure where to find information about it thought (maybe CEO-Mag if he wrote an article about it).

Thanks, that could be useful to test an interface, but also an old joystick ;)

Re: "Fair" games for the Oric?

Manic Miner springs to mind.
And Don't Press The Letter Q, even if it could happen to be unfair (not sure it happens, not sure it doesn't), it allows quite a few tries.

I suspect there are loads more ;)

Re: New Spanish text adventure!!!!

The Oric version, with instructions and everything you need to create your physical tape can be downloaded from here . The link seems to be down. I got the nice DSK version from Oric.org, but was there ever a TAP version available for Oric? Not that I need one :wink: , but just wondering. Thanks!

His birthday is next month, I'll save them and offer him!

Re: looking for a pixel flood fill routine

Glad you tried Goeff's ones!
At the moment I gave up looking at the Lorigraph one. It was a bit complicated and couldn't spend time on it for a month. But it's the fastest of the (very few) I saw.

On your Atmos, I suggest trying Load Vader (providing you can load it!), since it displays tape loading erro...

Re: Objectif Elysee

My brother tried one of the solutions without modifying the random parts of the program... He gave up ;)
(that being said, he probably tried with an emulator which probably always gives the same "random" sequence)
